Famous quotes containing the words bank and/or coin:

    It was like passing a boundary to dive
    Into the sun-filled water, brightly leafed
    And limbed and lighted out from bank to bank.
    That’s how the stars shine during the day.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    The oft-repeated Roman story is written in still legible characters in every quarter of the Old World, and but today, perchance, a new coin is dug up whose inscription repeats and confirms their fame. Some “Jud├Ža Capta,” with a woman mourning under a palm tree, with silent argument and demonstration confirms the pages of history.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
